The Texas Association of Museums Media Innovation & Excellence Awards




 
The Texas Association of Museums Media Innovation & Excellence Awards or TAMMIES for short, are designed to showcase museums 
that are doing innovative things with media and technology. 
We want to see how your museums are incorporating technology into
exhibits and programs; how you are using technology to reach virtual audiences outside of the traditional museum space; and how you
are using social media to engage with audiences in innovative ways. A separate student category will highlight the important work being
done by college students in our Texas museums. Winning projects are chosen by a jury of media and technology experts and the awards
will be presented at the 44th Texas Association of Museums annual meeting in Bryan College Station, Texas . Each category is eligible
for either Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Honorable mention depending on the number of entries in each category.

Winners will receive recognition at the Annual Meeting, on the TAM Newsletter, and on the TAM website.

  1.  In-Museum Experiences
